The Chiefs got another big victory beating the Dallas Cowboys 19 to 9 in Week 11. I admit I wasn’t sure they could do it. But the defense did what they were supposed to do and put pressure on Dak to get the W.

Of course, Patrick Mahomes had ANOTHER interception, which was predicted. Even though the Chiefs won, Mahomes didn’t have a great game, throwing for 260 yards and no TDs. On top of the interception, he also had a fumble. But those weren’t the only turnovers of the game, the Cowboys had two interceptions and a fumble.

Kansas City’s defense has greatly improved in the last few games. The Chiefs had a total of five sacks against the Cowboys, with Chris Jones finishing the game with 3.5 of them.

Clearly, the Chiefs still have some issues on offense with the two turnovers and only converting four of 12 on third downs. Some good news, CEH returned after being on IR for the last few weeks and had 63 rushing yards and one touchdown. Travis Kelce had 74 receiving yards and a rare rushing touchdown.

The AFC West Division

In Week 10, the Chiefs were the only team to win in the AFC West after beating the Las Vegas Raiders. That gave Kansas City the lead in the division for the first time this season. Another win in Week 11 helped the Chiefs keep the lead, especially with the Raiders losing. But the Chargers did get a victory and are on the heels of the Chiefs. In such a close division, the next few weeks are critical. After a bye week, the Chiefs meet with the Broncos for the first time this year. After that, they still have three more division games, all leading to huge playoff implications.

During the Chiefs’ bye week, the Raiders will play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving and the Broncos will host the Chargers.

Chiefs Super Bowl Odds

Winning the AFC West isn’t the only way into the playoffs. The Chiefs could also get a wild card spot if they don’t end up winning the division. Many top AFC teams are struggling, making the AFC wide open.

In Week 11, the Titans lost to the Texans. The Bills also lost and now the Patriots are in first of the division. The Ravens are still on top of the AFC North, but that is another close AFC division. And Week 12 is full of AFC North division games that will really make an impact on the standings.

Of course, the Chiefs have already lost to all three of those teams. They only have six games left, all against AFC teams. That means a first-round bye along with hosting the AFC Championship is a long shot this year. But there is still hope for the Chiefs to make the playoffs and maybe even the Super Bowl for the third year in a row.
